Southport police officer dies after being shot while responding to crash
By Associated Press | FOX59 | Updated July 28, 2017

HOMECROFT, Ind.-- A Southport police officer died Thursday after being shot while responding to a crash.

The incident occurred just after 2:30 p.m. Thursday near Maynard Drive and Madison Avenue in Homecroft, a Perry Township town located approximately 8 miles south of Indianapolis.

Police say the deceased officer, identified as Southport Lieutenant Aaron Allan, and a Homecroft officer responded to the scene after reports of an inverted vehicle. That's when police say "shots were fired by one of the vehicle’s occupants, striking the Southport lieutenant."

IMPD said the 38-year-old lieutenant was shot multiple times. EMS arrived and transported him to the Eskenazi Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries. He is survived by his wife and children.

During a press conference, Southport Police Chief Thomas Vaughn said Lt. Allan was a 6-year veteran with the department and he had nearly 20 years of law enforcement experience.

Police say the Homecroft officer and an off-duty Johnson County reserve deputy returned fire during the incident, striking one of the two occupants of the overturned car. The occupants were also transported to Eskenazi. One reportedly sustained injuries from an officer’s gunshot, while the other suffered injuries in the crash. Those injuries are believed to be non-life threatening, police say.

According to a police report, Jason Brown, 28, faces a preliminary charge of murder. The other occupant in the vehicle has not yet been identified.

A very long article. Happened six years ago. A bench trial.

Murder trial of ex-cop in St. Louis could draw national attention
By Joel Currier | St. Louis Post-Dispatch | July 31, 2017, 11:30AM


ST. LOUIS • The debate over police shootings of black men focuses on St. Louis this week as a former city police officer stands trial for the alleged premeditated murder of Anthony Lamar Smith nearly six years ago.

Jason Stockley, 36, is charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action in the Dec. 20, 2011, shooting death of Smith following a police chase stemming from a suspected drug deal. Smith, who lived in the 4800 block of Page Boulevard, was 24 at the time and the father of a 1-year-old daughter.

The rarity of an ex-cop on trial for murder could draw national attention following recent acquittals elsewhere of white police officers charged with killing black men. Opening statements in Stockley’s two-week trial begin Tuesday in front of St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson, who will decide the case because Stockley waived his right to a jury trial.
[...]
Stockley and his partner, Officer Brian Bianchi, spotted Smith in a suspected drug transaction in a Church’s Chicken parking lot at Thekla Avenue and Riverview Boulevard about 12:30 p.m. Smith led the officers on a mile-long chase at speeds that reached at least 87 mph through city neighborhoods before ending with a crash.

Police dashboard recordings and two videos from the restaurant show the officers pulled behind Smith’s rented silver Buick. As they got out, Smith backed into the police SUV and sped from the lot past Stockley, nearly knocking an AK-47 rifle from his hands. The rifle was his own, which the department has said he was not authorized to carry on duty. Stockley fired several shots from his duty pistol before he and Bianchi chased Smith with two in-car cameras rolling.

Stockley reported shots being fired and shouted directions over the police radio. He also says something about shooting Smith, which court records reveal as “Going to kill this (expletive), don’t you know it.”

At West Florissant and Acme avenues, Stockley was recorded telling Bianchi to ram the back of Smith’s car, which Bianchi does, triggering the Buick’s airbags. Both officers got out; Stockley carried both his AK-47 and department handgun. Stockley fired several pistol shots into the car, then put his rifle back into the police SUV.

I watched this today, live.
It's an hour long presser. Starts at 4:00min BUT by 15:00min mark most of the details are stated.

Sheriff's Press Conference 8/7/2017- Stolen Vehicle/Fatal Crash in Palm Harbor




Image

The teens stole two cars from a dealership and went for a "cat & mouse" ride early Sunday morning. Two in a Sebring and four in a 2015 Ford Explorer.

After running from the police and tailed by helicopter, the driver of the Ford turned off the head-lights and sped through an intersection on a red traffic light going 100mph. After hitting a car going through the intersection on a green light, the Ford went airborne, striking five cars on a lot and a large sign pole 10 feet up in the air.

Three died, the fourth teen in the car (14 y/o brother of the driver) went through the front windshield from the back seat and only suffered a concussion. None of the four were wearing seatbelts. The two in the Sebring fled the scene but are now in custody.

All six have been in a program where officials check on them once a day. It was ordered by the court they attend this program under strict supervision. The six have a total of 127 arrests among them.

They had all smoked marijuana one hour prior to the accident.

This happened yesterday, he survived after being shot in the shoulder.
The first two minutes is from helicopter, and the rest of the video is repeat from vantage point of the shooter.
The title fails to mention he is naked. :eek
